This year we really wanted to make it to Lollibop but, due to holiday and work commitments, we can’t. We were even more disappointed not to be able to make it when we found out that Vita Coco Kids were going to be there are they are Grace’s new favourite.
At Lollibop, Vita Coco will be asking adults and children to join in some fun at the hourly sandcastle building contests or by trying their hand at the coconut shy to win some great prizes.
As well as the more vigorous activities, there will be colouring and activities and plenty of deckchairs in order for tired bodies to put their feet up beneath some palm trees and just chill for a while.
In case you hadn’t heard of Vita Coco Kids, the drink is made from young coconut water blended with natural fruit flavourings and spring water with no added flavourings or preservatives, making it a natural source of hydration for children. It has around 20 % less sugar and calories than other leading kid’s drinks in the UK. It is available in both Apple & Blackcurrant and Mango & Pineapple (Grace’s total favourite!). The drinks also contain naturally occurring potassium which helps keeps kids energised and hydrated – especially useful for hot summer days.
Grace also entered the MAD Blog Awards Kid Blog of the Year 2014, over on her blog kidGLloves, which has been sponsored by Vita Coco Kids, so I would definitely class her as one of their biggest fans.
